Police to start cracking down on speeding drivers

Police are cracking down on Michigan drivers in a statewide campaign to reduce the number of speeding-related crashes and deaths seen throughout the state. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a drastic rise in speed-related crashes. In 2021 there were 237 fatal crashes where speed was the factor, an 18.5% increase from 2020. Some Michigan drivers think this crackdown can be a good thing, especially in the midst of the holiday season. This speed enforcement campaign starts Thursday, December 1 and will continue through Feburary 28, 2023.
